Crystal shares how she came into the faith as a teenager and what it's meant to live it out as a mom, wife, and in ministry. Together, they look at Colossians 3, considering the life of "putting on" and "taking off," especially when things like ministry and work don't go your way and you're left disappointed with a wounded heart. You'll find this episode filled with the encouragement to embrace both the hustle of work and holiness of rest in light of Crystal's new book, Holy Hustle. HighlightsGod is still doing a new thing.
